We’re really looking forward to such a unique collaboration that celebrates a shared passion and creative talent right in our own backyard.

On First Thursday, when major art galleries share their newest exhibits in Portland's cultural district, an opening reception for Blazermania will be held from 6 to 10 pm at IDL Worldwide's Gallery 135, 135 NW Park Avenue.

Clothing brands Trillblazin and Spikes High have united for Blazermania, an art collection that spotlights Portland’s love of the Portland Trail Blazers and creative ingenuity. Designers and artists of different disciplines and mediums have come together to produce works rooted in their love of basketball, the Trail Blazers and Portland.

In a juxtaposition of perspectives and styles, you will find a unique collection of Blazer-themed art, including watercolor, spray paint, 3D printing, collage, ceramic and pixels. The art collection was brought together under the direction of Nathan Tabor and includes work by artists Will Bryant, Matthew Hollister, Dan Gluibizzi, Aaron Dana, Gangsta Doodles and Baseball Card Vandals, among others. All art will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served.

Jake Pacheco, IDL Design Director and Curator at Gallery 135, says, “We’re really looking forward to such a unique collaboration that celebrates a shared passion and creative talent right in our own backyard.”

The reception is open to everyone.
